Future Arrangements for FBTEE

I am pleased to announce ambitious plans for establishing a Research Centre for Digital Humanities at the University of Western Sydney (UWS). This news is hot off the press. I had been aware of the proposals for over a year, but it is great to see them come to fruition. They were a major consideration in my decision to move to UWS, as the Centre will offer great infrastructural support for proposed and existing projects. Equally, FBTEE was mentioned in the proposal documentation, so played a small part in strengthening an impressive proposal.

It is now less than a month til I leave Leeds, and in due course the FBTEE project’s online materials will follow me. They will be hosted by Leeds until after the 2013 Research Assessment cut-off, to allow Leeds to claim its share of the credit. Thereafter it will be hosted at UWS, with an automatic forwarding facility from Leeds for at least the first couple of years. For users the transition should be seamless. And to minimise risks, the cloning of materials is already underway…
